I wanna Recharge My Hair to GIFt myself a New, Recharged Life ..

Well, you are about to enter a recharge cycle of sorts ..

hmm.. we have all heard about a vicious cycle, so what's a recharge cycle? I define a recharge cycle as a positive chain reaction that results in a continuous, cumulative, positive recharge of energy and therefore events in our life thus providing a new impetus to our life cycle :)

sorry, i guess that's a word one too many ..

especially when the subject matter of the post is 'Hair'.. yes, not for nothing is it called our crowning glory!

Hair, to me and to our culture, is all about visual resplendence, so i have decided to dedicate this blog post, as a tribute to, exactly that - visual resplendence :)

Here i present to you, Ladies & Gentlemen, my coolest reasons why I want to recharge my hair and how it will recharge my life:

I present this in the form of GIFs(Graphics Interchange Format)for two reasons:

1.  Yes, visual resplendence

2.  Seamless ease - if they were videos, you have to 'click' to play each of them; whilst, here, you can be handsfree and enjoy seamless visual resplendence - exactly as beautiful hair comes across as a visual delight!

Since my presentation is in the form of GIFs, the title aptly is "GIFt" of a new, recharge life :)

Okie, that's enough tossing, let's get to the roots, shall we?

Vivian Greene famously said "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass ..... Its about learning to dance in the rain."

Recharging my Hair will empower me to Dance in the Rain .. without a care in the world .. since I was a teenager, rain dancing has attracted and fascinated me.. come,experience it with me.. 




Ever watched a peacock dance? Even better, ever joined in?  I will now be able to with Recharged Hair ..



Ever danced in the rain with friends? I want to and now can do precisely that ..



I can now reduce an umbrella to a mere prop, in my dance in the rain ..




And make my loved ones dance to my tunes .. well, quite literally..

Its a long time since I went Bungee Jumping .. now, I don't mean a backyard bungee jumping prank, trust me:



Or, bungee jumping in the shallow neighborhood pond for that matter..



I mean serious Bungee Jumping, from real heights to come down in a free fall, liberated and one with nature .. 




There is hardly anything as much an oxymoron in life as bungee jumping .. it gives you such a high even as you plunge lower and lower!

I even have 'bungee jumping' themed jewelry (you can see it in the last GIF to this post .. the 'closing highlights') ..

Yet, for years, i have been damn worried that the few locks of crowning glory i have might actually submit to gravity earlier than I do and plummet never to return .. now that i will recharge my hair, i can recharge my life going bungee jumping.. and, ford a stream and feel a valley..




I love Kayaking and Canoeing, actually more Kayaking than the latter:

ah ah, no, not stating that here for a post .. have already successfully kayaked in Kerala & Vancouver .. and fallen irrevocably in love with sailboats .. can show you actual, dated snaps :)

Come, experience my would be recharged life with me..

That's Canoeing for you ..



And, Kayaking for me :)

Well, well, if you notice, they are bald .. that's because, they hadn't recharged their hair and in the swift and cold winds, they lost it all!  I wouldn't thanks to my recharge I hope :)




Color, Color, What Color?

Recharging my hair would be a color lifeline for my hair and life .. a born fashionista, with a deep penchant for hues and colors, they sway me naturally!

I would have renounced life had i been born a gentleman .. seriously, i just can't live life in 'black, white, grey, brown and navy' as colors! phew! here we are, debating if mauve or soft pink or fuchsia contributes the most to making 'Radiant Orchid' the Pantone Color of the Year 2014 ..

Yet, for such unbridled love for colors, the myriad components in hair colors scare the hell out of me .. and potentially my hair out of my head ..

Which is why, recharging my hair might fortify it to withstand and welcome a color onslaught .. wow .. take a look ..




Few things can exhilarate and well, accelerate life as much as hair colors can ..




Paragliding 

I have never gone paragliding and am waiting to recharge myself to take a first shot at it..



Planet Mars, here i come ..

Regular readers of this blog know my love for amateur astronomy and how keenly I follow the sky calendar and the Mars missions (Our very own, Indian and the American missions).

I fancy inter-planetary travel and would love to head over to Planet Mars .. soon (yeah, they are still recruiting for one way volunteers .. I am waiting for it to become two way, you see, so i can come back and make a fortune out of my visit so i can finance my trip to Planet Venus thereafter)..

Being worried about hairfall all the time, it would be poetic justice to defy gravity and have my hair raise .. literally ..




I then would not only have the myriad hues and colors for my hair, but also the shine and twinkle of the galaxies thanks to my space travel: how exciting na?




Its time to get back to Earth now, sweetheart ..

I grew up to fairy tales and despite racks and racks of Cinderella shoes, am still waiting for my Prince Charming .. oh well, not because Nature did not bestow me with goodness .. but because we just haven't found each other .. yeah, GPS doesn't work in matters of the heart, you see, at least, not as yet ..

So what if Cinderella isn't it for me?

It could be Rapunzel hurray!

After I recharge my hair, I can recharge my life Rapunzel style by finding my Prince Charming aka Mr.Right ..




After which, sooner than later, it will hopefully be time for a Status Update .. by God ..

Time for Motherhood:

The most blessed and privileged, unique status update we ladies can have is to become a Mother .. to a child .. the Father of Man!

Yet, before, with and after Motherhood come a serious of fears and challenges .. the two chief ones revolving around shedding .. the first, we want to shed weight post pregnancy and the second, oh dear, I dread this, we don't want to shed hair because of all the hormonal changes our body goes through in this remarkable Natural phase of life ..



I dread my baby should not react like this should I experience severe hair loss:



Well, if i can receive recharging solutions for my hair and go in to my pregnancy with hair immune to the oncoming onslaught .. well, well, i can have the hair and braid it too, what say?

That's that for the future ..

Here's how recharging my hair will most immediately recharge my life (yes, you got it, i am a huge fan of parallel cinema and love swaying the script backwards and forwards .. its as much challenge as tackling tangled hair, trust me) 

Wash my hair, whenever I want ..

Oh dear, i read in my research for this post, that a 100 years ago, folks washed their hair once a month .. guess what, i am getting there .. no silly, not because of the inflation & not being able to afford hair care products ..its because i am not able to afford the amount of hair loss wetting my hair causes ..



Add to it the trauma of getting scolded by Mom .. this is what a double whammy should be ..




I long for recharged hair so i will get a pampered hair wash every time, as often as i want ..



And, I can attain nirvana under the shower ..




And, I don't have to broadcast my usual sob story after every hair wash episode ..



With recharged hair, I can toss and turn and enjoy my just washed hair .. without the fear of losing hair ..



I can celebrate Holi - The Festival of Colors

When was the last time you actually 'celebrated' Holi, the festival of colors, in all its glory celebrated in the Country?  All the more if you are a girl / lady ..

I hide .. because, forget hair color dear, these holi colors will be oh so unholy for my hair ..

Recharged hair will of course stand up to this and i can, at long last, plunge in to a world of color and splendor:




Am I Game again for Love All? Its time for Tennis ..

Recharging my hair will return me to my first love .. yes, tennis and especially lawn tennis.

There are only three seasons in my hometown Chennai - Hot, Hotter and Hottest.  Throw in some free humidity and if you want to know what playing a tennis match feels like, just watch the upcoming Grand Slam of the Asia Pacific, The Australian Open: all the more, you have to be a gal / lady with pony tailed crowning glory to understand what all that sweat can wreck ..



With recharged hair, I can be a star attraction flaunting my crowning glory ..




So, until this opportunity to recharge my hair and therefore life comes across, I guess, i will have to be content playing tennis indoors .. on the Nintendo .. phew!



My Beauty Sleep

I love sleeping with my hair open .. alas, that means a few decades less with my hair! Yeah, leaving hair open whilst sleeping, while supplying it good air, does result in lots of tangles and ultimately hairfall ..

Recharged hair might give me my ultimate freedom .. to sleep with my hair and conscience wide open :)



I have limited hair now and the few styles I can experiment with are:

A grown-up ponytail:



And, spray my hair to give it extra volume ..



Recharging my hair will open my world to a galaxy of Hair Styles and Options: like this Game of Thrones braid :)

I have always fancied standing on a ship, like Rose (Kate Winslet) does in the movie Titanic, stormy winds tangling my fortified hair .. looking in to the icy chill waters below .. as soon as i get my hair recharge, this is where i am heading .. lo and behold ..



If you thought those are dime a dozen cool reasons to recharge my hair and thus recharge my life, dear reader, you have no clue what's coming ..

I am braiding this post together for the IndiBlogger - Sunsilk 'Recharge Your Hair, Recharge Your Life' engagement:


and on offer .. is a cool new Vespa ..

So, another super cool reason to get my hair recharged is so that I can zip past in the Vespa .. now, a helmet that a two-wheeler comes with can be quite a challenge for hair health .. ask Virender Sehwag, if you don't agree .. so, with recharged hair, i can take on the world .. 

and sport different hairstyles and become a star celebrity in my fashionista circle, doubly so, with the Vespa in tow .. Yo Womaniya:


All through the post, i have bragged about recharging my hair .. wonder how?

Sunsilk are providing the secret solution to recharging our hair .. so, as soon as i get it, i will fuel myself .. to recharge my life as aforesaid ..

Anymore reasons and this post will get longer than Rapunzel's hair ..

So, i am applying the brake here ..

Now, what's a good story with a recap and what's a good scooter without a stephney (is that how they spell it)? 

So, here is a fond GIF i created myself as 'closing highlights' (yeah, i love hair highlights): take a look .. this is how recharged hair will recharge my life ..

If you liked this ride, here is a little extra ..

You can view the closing highlights with a rocking track ..



Hope you loved the ride .. was like no other right? Took me 15 woman hours in the making .. invested in conceptualizing, researching, sourcing, scripting, creating, editing and of course, publishing / presenting ..

Thanks so much for stopping by .. before you zip past, I would love for you to park your views in the 'comments' below ..

Cheers :)
